The automotive industry is going very interesting places; pun very much intended. More and more, we’re seeing exciting innovations and developments that are pushing the way we drive in new and exciting directions, and what’s comforting is to see that many of these efforts are being made towards sustainability. Finding new ways to do things so that we have less of an impact on the environment and our pocketbooks has been a big interest, especially over the course of the last several years. The last two decades have made it clear that we need to be taking better care of the environment, and the behavior of the economy over the course of the last few years has made frugality more fashionable than ever before. As such, ways to save the earth and save some cash are more popular than ever, and the recent developments in the automotive industry have reflected these concerns. One company, however, going by the name of Lit Motors, is aiming to take both of these factors into consideration and hopes to seriously revolutionize the idea of personal transportation in a way that hasn’t quite been done before.
At thirty-three years old, Daniel Kim is certainly one of the more successful people his age. The aforementioned Lit Motors is his personal endeavor, and the young entrepreneur has done a lot to turn heads over the course of the last couple of years. Dissatisfied with the transportation options available, Daniel Kim put his lifelong fascination with engineering and tinkering to good use, and came up with one of the most revolutionary automotive creations that we’ve seen in quite some time.
Lit Motors is presenting the C-1, which essentially takes all the best parts of several different kinds of vehicle to create something newer and better than anything that’s existed on the market as of yet. The C-1 is easily described as part-motorcycle, part-car and this description is perfectly apt. The vehicle also boasts an incredibly fuel-efficient electric motor. In fact, the C-1 doesn’t use any fuel at all. The plug-in motor can go as fast as 120 miles per hour, and drivers can get up to two hundred miles out of a single full charge. Pretty impressive specs for a car designed by a thirty-three year old.
The two-seater is a little bit safer than the average motorcycle, so you won’t have to spend a ton of money on motorcycle accident lawyer fees if you invest in the C-1. Lit Motors have seen about two hundred and fifty preorders for the C-1, so the next quest is to find investors and convince the public that the C-1 is a good idea. Kim is hopeful, and bets that with the right amount of investment he can convince the world that this revolutionary new idea is worth getting into. All he needs now is a little bit of startup money, and the C-1 could be the next big thing in transportation.
